The Violence Prevention Specialist serves as a catalyst for student groups, faculty, and staff by creating opportunities to discuss violence prevention, developing prevention strategies that encourage community-based solutions, and implementing such solutions. In partnership with students, faculty, staff, and community-based organizations, University Health Services' goal is to establish zero tolerance for all forms of abuse and violence at UW-Madison and provides support, advocacy, and healing for survivors.
Duties encompass all forms of violence that affect the university community including: problems between friends or roommates, alcohol-related violence, racial intimidation or harassment, and fan conduct at athletic events.
University Health Services launched Tonight program, designed with UW-Madison students to make UW-Madison a safer campus. First-year students are required to complete this program before they can enroll in classes.
